Sachin Gets the Record!!, breaks Lara’s record for most runs in Test match cricket

Sachin tendulkar has finally broken the record of Brain lara.Tendulkar has emerged as the highest run-getter in Test cricket's history, staking a legitimate claim as the best batsman cricket has known since Don Bradman, both aesthetically and statistically.

Peter Siddle sent down the first ball of the post-tea session. Tendulkar glided it to third man for three runs to surpass Lara's record of 11,953 runs and raise the bar even higher for posterity.

Tendulkar's satatistics are mind-blowing, I doubt will this record will ever be broken again for no one starts playing at the age of sixteen and continues playing for 18 years in contemporary cricket.

Tendulkar arrived here with 11,939 runs against his name from 151 Tests, averaging 54.02 hitting 39 centuries in the process. His ODI record put together-- he tops the run-accumulator's chart there too with 16,361 runs -- Tendulkar has scored more than 25,000 international runs with the help of a mindboggling (42+39) 81 centuries and 138 half-centuries.

A great gift For Diwali by sachin to his die-hard fans, Just Like me!!
